Draft @ Coalhouse Pizza. On the maltier side, this brew is lightly hopped with notes of fresh bread and a bit of citrus from the hops. Not a bad beer, but forgettable. Reynolds314 (3433) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Awesome job by NEBCO on this. Really strong grassy citrus aroma and a nice crisp dry and lightly bittered pale ale with a lot of hop character. auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2012
On tap at Prime 16 - New Haven, CT. Did I just pay $2.50 for this? Yes, I did, thanks to Prime 16’s ass-kicking happy hour. And holy crap is this worth it. Easily the best hoppy beer bargain I’ve ever had. Softened fruit and pine aromas, fantastic quaffability and that emergent "Hill Farmstead" hop juice taste. A good balance with malt and plenty of awesome hop flavor to keep this American and exciting. Very, very nice. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - OCT 6, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2012 Yea sample straight from brewery, wow this completely crushes it. What a huge tasty hop presence, this fucks with hill farmstead davey101 (751) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 26, 2012
64 oz growler of the second batch. I believe this was tapped on 9/21/12. Pour into a NEBCO pint glass.
A - Like most hoppy beers from NEBCO, this is unfiltered. Hazy orange body that resembles juice. One finger high white head forms with large bubbling. Settles into a thin white cap with loads of sticky lacing and retention.
S - Orange juice hops, pine, light grass, and some crackery malts. The finish is very faint, but its certainly of dank weed. Smell is excellent.
T - Orange and grapefruit juice, a touch of pine and grass, light and crackery malts then BAM...a huge wall of bitterness. Its just so pleasantly bitter with clean and fresh notes of citrus. There is a little danky and spicy bite to round things out as well.
M - Light to medium bodied with great carbonation. Very crisp with a lasting bitterness.
O - Another amazing hoppy hit from NEBCO. This beer drinks like an IPA, but has the alcohol of one of those new-fangled session beers. This is extraordinary stuff!

Pulled straight out of the bright tank for a few of us at the brewery (how awesome is that!) Orange pour with just a little bit of head. Aroma is dank dank dank. Spicy resinous hope notes. This is a Galaxy showcase and it doesn’t disappoint. Earthy resinous spicy hop bomb. Balanced though and not overly bitter. Super tasty beer, but I was burping up Galaxy hops for the next hour.

Growler from the brewery. Pours gold with a white head. Smells of citrus, melon, honeydew, some light ginger hints. Tastes of dry malt, some floral hints, grassy, earthy with a touch of bitter citrus on the finish. Enjoyable. rocbyter (2118) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Light hop aroma. Cloudy light orange color with a small white head. Moderate bitter taste throughout.
